Happy New Year! 2021 – I am cautiously optimistic about you! I’m so excited to be linking up with Anne for her monthly Currently series. If you have absolutely no clue what I’m talking about, pop over to her site and take a peek around — you WILL NOT be disappointed I love, love, love this series and today I’m joining her and some of the fabulous faces who frequent her internet space for this month’s Currently, which covers what I’m currently beginning, feeling, organizing, resolving, and wondering.
GlowBodyPT’s 21-day challenge. Technically, I began this in December, but who’s counting? 2020 wrecked havoc on my fitness routine and my mental health suffered in a major way because of it. A combination of life, stress, work, and personal factors sent me into periods of extreme fitness, followed by others with zero fitness, so I’m hoping to find a better balance heading into this new year. Like I said above – cautiously optimistic.
Ashley’s free online workouts are amazing and I highly recommend them for anyone who has never tried!
We ended the year with another Zoom funeral for a family member and I’d be lying if I said I was feeling anything other than completely exasperated. Yes, I am looking ahead at 2021 with a dash of optimism, but we still have a very long road to go.
My addresses! This is extremely embarrassing, but for the better part of three years, when someone has mailed me a card, I tear off the return address and just shove it in a drawer by my desk. Then, when I need anyone’s address, I rifle through this little slips of paper, which takes more time than it should. It’s an issue. So I have finally taken the initiative to organize and sort through addresses, particularly since I now have multiple addresses for the same people (thank you military PCSing!). This is a huge win!
Dane and I usually create a list of goals we have for the year, but I’ll be honest – that isn’t happening for 2021. My biggest “goal” is to find the joy. In the big moments, small moments, hard moments…count it all joy.
The other day I was listening to the radio when the host prompted listeners to think about what their biggest personal lesson was from 2020. It’s easy to look at the year as a mess, or as the internet has affectionately dubbed it “one giant dumpster fire”. And even easier, I would imagine, to look at the collective, worldly lessons, but when it comes down to a person mindset, where do you fall?
It really made me think and frankly, I have quite a few. I learned a lot about myself and my relationships and some of those lessons I prefer to keep private. But it really got me wondering, so I think it’s important to pass it forward to others. What was your biggest personal lesson from 2020?
